He got his comeuppance ten years later in the movie "The Man Who
Would be King" -- and via a woman too.  (Although he didn't hit a
woman in the movie -- perhaps because it has few women who speak.)

(Wikipedia tells me "Shot on location in Morocco, Huston had planned
to make the film since the 1950s ..."  I didn't know he was shot there.)
